Cases are submitted by your customers through the customer portal on your website (to learn how to setup your customer portal click here ). As a service agent in SupportSync, you can respond back to your customers requests and when necessary, easily create a Return or a Part Request.
In the example below, a New Case has arrived. Accept this Case and respond accordingly.
Cases can be viewed and responded to from the Preview window (as seen below) or by selecting and opening a case by double clicking or highlighting the case and pressing the enter key. There are a variety of action buttons (red box) including "Submit" comments as well as the "Pop Out" drop down which allows other actions such as Edit and create a New Return.
Once a Case is accepted, you can respond with troubleshooting tips or go ahead and create a Return (RMA). In the example below, we've decided to create an RMA by opening the Case view and clicking the "New Return" button.
A new window will open and a New Return can be created. Once created, an automated email will be sent from the system to your customer with your return instructions. Your customer can also view the status of the Return by logging into their portal account. For more information on creating returns, please see Chapter 2 in the User Guide
Once the Return has been created, you can click over and view the source case of the Return if needed.
